A few weeks ago I bought this painting [in postcard size] by Jeanne Norton Hammett. My mom has been
totally mildly obsessed with her work for some time now, and I quickly followed suit. I love the colors she uses. I love her Southern Maryland imagery. I have this thing, you see, where buy artwork related to or depicting places that I have been. I have a large map of Paris, a watercolor from Sienna, and postcards from literally every place I’ve visited. Ever. I’m kind of a postcard hoarder. There should be a show.
Each of her pieces are slightly different because of the varrying movements of the paint during the silk screening process so each will differ in it’s skies or waters. They’re each perfectly imperfect.
I have my eye on this piece in a full scale to make a nice pairing. Isn’t it beautiful!? The online pictures don’t do it justice. The colors are bright, yet not overwhelming. Now I just need to save up my monies for bit…minor detail. [Just in case you’re wondering, she’s having an open house Dec. 10 and 11 at her studio. She promised me cookies!]
